A CLEAR SENSE OF EASE and livability welcomes the owners, their three kids, pets, and visitors to this light-filled home. Whether arriving at the front door where an unexpected pattern of oversized leaves enlivens the entry and stair hall, or via the family mudroom, details abound that are both practical and sophisticated.
The Purple Cherry interior design studio joined the project team at just the right moment, allowing the team to guide the overall design direction from inception. Engaged communication and partnership with the owners and architect of record thus created a unified vision of stylish practicality in harmony with the Queen Anne architecture.
The scope of work comprising this beguiling environment brought wall coverings, calming color palates, tile and countertop selections, light fixtures, upholstery, and furnishings together to support an active family lifestyle and delight the eye. A clever design for temperature-controlled wine storage is built into the dining room making a passion convenient to share and enjoy. The bedrooms likewise are an appealing balance of design sensitivity and ingenuity. Texture, pattern, and geometry merge to enhance and personalize each space in the house. From the Tinta starburst pattern by Robert Allan Duralee for the blinds and drapes in the family/breakfast room to durable denim chair coverings, to custom built-ins and a considered place for everything, good taste and good sense are evident throughout.
